During these Covid times we welcome travellers to come and stay long term. There are many jobs to choose from all year round within walking distance from the hostel or ride share - cafe, admin, horticulture, in the port & for fishing companies, painting & working in construction. We can help find you a job. If you work on-line or are a student we have fast WIFI & spaces to work in.
We have become well known for this nightly treat .....
Hot Chocolate pudding (vegan friendly) & ice cream served every evening, every night of the year @ 8pm. A nice vibe is created thru this daily ritual which draws people together.

Reliable, fast WIFI means you can come stay for a month or more & work and/or study or use to connect with family & friends.
Take the bike & head to the beach or up the Maitai River - so many different places to explore.

On top of all the free winter goodies, we are also offering FREE off street car parking. We are in a central but quiet location and you can leave your car parked with us while you explore city and surroundings!
What a crazy times - as I write this we are back in Level 4 Lockdown (Aug 2021). I've been running TBB now for nearly 20 years. The last year and a half many things have changed - mostly due to COVID. But some things are still the same - we (me and my co-workers) still like to think our Hostel might be like your favourite café - a place where you are totally relaxed and comfortable, there is good music playing (whether that be ours or guests playing on one of the guitars or ukelele), the people are friendly and the atmosphere is just right. A place which feels good to be in, a place where you might have a coffee, a glass of wine, play a game, share stories, have a few laughs. A place which is a little like home & as one guest wrote who was with us for lockdown 2020 - "maybe the first home you have every really had". Travellers keep coming - we work at being a good place to be during Covid times.
